Recycling Services manages all of the College's locations of outgoing material with the goal of recycling or reusing as much as possible.  We also encourage departments and student groups to purchase materials that are durable or made of recyclable content.

Last fiscal year, 2012-2013, Lane Community College recycled or reused 49.5% (336 tons) of all of its outgoing material at all of seven of its locations throughout Lane County and 53% (321 tons) at its 30th Avenue Main Campus.  

Lane Community College Recycling is the recipent of county, state, and national awards for excellence in operations and education.  In 2011, Lane opened the Recycling Education Center (REC), a comprehensive recycling facility dedicated to minimizing the amount of material sent into the waste stream, reducing waste-related costs, increasing revenue through commodity and property sales, and educating the campus and community through events, internships, volunteer opporunties, and innovative operations.  To learn more about the REC, click here.
